Everland - Seoul's Themepark of Fun
All about Everland!
If you love themeparks and are in Seoul for the holidays, do make a stop at Everland, South Korea's largest theme park located in Yongin City, in the province of Gyeonggi-do; about an hour and a half away from Seoul.
Depending on the season that you go (e.g. Summer, Spring, Autumn, Winter), the park will be decorated accordingly: pretty blossoming flowers in spring, Halloween for Autumn and a wintery Christmas theme for Winter etc...
There are a couple of ways to get to Everland, be it bus or train:
- Take the subway to Gangnam Exit 10, walk straight until you arrive at the bus stop in front of "WHO.A.U" and take bus #5002. One way ticket is 2100 won. You can use your T-money card. Once you arrive, you have to take a complimentary shuttle to Everland.
- Take the subway (and transfer about 4 times - Gyeongbokgung (Line 3) > Gangnam (Line 2) > Jeongja (Shinbundang Line) > Giheung (Bundang Line) > Jeondae Everland (Everline) and take the Everline straight to the door step of the shuttle bus which will bring you to Everland.
